Our customer is a worldwide trusted expert in wireless transport. Their existing plugin cards have become end-of-life and require a redesign/modernization.
To replace the existing ASIC functionality in the plugin cards with equivalent functionality based on commercially available FPGA technology.
- Redesign the existing E1/DS1 interfaces, muxed/demuxed, into a new STM1 optical interface.
- Replace existing STM1 multiplexing/interfacing functionality.
- Allow customers to add their own logic without revealing each others IP.
- Prevent duplication of code so customers can have access to AimValley building blocks.
Design of a working FPGA solution with partially encrypted IP source files, enabling the customer to add their own extensions including software support via SDK APIs. Also a driver package was designed to be integrated in the customer’s own development environment.
